Hello football fans! Welcome to Week 8 of the NFL season!
It’s been quite a season, with our first tie of the year! The Seattle Seahawks and the Arizona Cardinals couldn’t decide which team wanted to win. Cardinals kicker Chandler Catanzaro missed a 24-yard field goal, and Seahawks kicker Stephen Hauschka followed that with a missed 28-yarder.
Regardless, both teams will have at least one tie under their name this year. Here’s hoping it doesn’t turn into a trend for both.
In other news, no undefeated teams remain. The Philadelphia Eagles put a stop to the Minnesota Vikings 21-10. It appears the 1972 Miami Dolphins will have to wait for next year if any team can run the table.
I went 10-5 for Week 7, bringing my total to 59-48 for the season. Ties count as losses when you make picks. It’s simple: if your team doesn’t win, you still get the big L. Here’s a recap of what I got right and wrong:
|Thu Oct 20||8:25 pm||Chicago Bears||Green Bay Packers|
|Sun Oct 23||9:30 am||New York Giants||Los Angeles Rams|
|1:00 pm||Baltimore Ravens X||New York Jets|
|1:00 pm||Buffalo Bills||Miami Dolphins|
|1:00 pm||Cleveland Browns||Cincinnati Bengals (s.o.)|
|1:00 pm||Indianapolis Colts||Tennessee Titans X|
|1:00 pm||Minnesota Vikings X||Philadelphia Eagles|
|1:00 pm||New Orleans Saints||Kansas City Chiefs|
|1:00 pm||Oakland Raiders||Jacksonville Jaguars|
|1:00 pm||Washington Redskins||Detroit Lions|
|4:05 pm||San Diego Chargers||Atlanta Falcons X|
|4:05 pm||Tampa Bay Buccaneers||San Francisco 49ers|
|4:25 pm||New England Patriots||Pittsburgh Steelers|
|8:30 pm||Seattle Seahawks||Arizona Cardinals X|
|Mon Oct 24||8:30 pm||Houston Texans||Denver Broncos|
Here are my picks for this week. Taking a bye for this week will be the Giants, Rams, Ravens, Steelers, Dolphins and the 49ers. Remember, the s.o. stands for the shutout pick:

|1:00 pm||Detroit Lions||Houston Texans|
|1:00 pm||Green Bay Packers||Atlanta Falcons|
